It started with Willy Kjarsgaard selling Danish Christmas and Motherís Day Plates from the basement of his home. In September of 1978, after retiring from his first business, Danica Cabinets, Willy and his daughter, Asta Ostergaard opened Dania Unique on Fairview St. in Burlington Ontario.

Dania Unique became one of the first Bradford Exchange Dealers in Canada, selling limited edition collectors plates and various collectibles. Dania is best known for its large selection of Lladro Figurines from Spain, Royal Doulton Figurines, Waterford Crystal, Trish Romance Collectables and Swarovski Crystal.

In 1992, after Willy passed away, Asta was joined by her daughter, Dianne Rutty, who is helping to continue the tradition of a family owned and operated business.

The latest additions to the store are fashionable jewellery designs from Pandora, Swarovski and Elle.

Asta, Dianne and the staff at Dania Unique feel that in todayís marketplace personalized service is difficult to find. A key philosophy that has helped Dania over the last 30 years is to provide outstanding customer service in a professional manner. This philosophy has resulted in many long term customers and new customer referrals.

The Bradford Exchange has named Dania Unique, itís Dealer of the Year, and we have also received numerous Burlington Reader Choice Awards.
